  1. The Nigerian Armed Force Should be ashamed of them selves, I remember way back in the barracks how enlisting into the Nigerian Army was done, where only competent, credible personalities with the heart of defending this NATION NIGERIA Were selected or enlisted to be a soldiers. But today, it is unfortunate that the so call Generals and Politician (Godfathre’s) of this great land made things so terrible, One can and I say only secure a job if he or she is linked to this evil men up there, corruption is the order of the day, and that is why today’s military men can’t stand this blood sucking demonic possess people call (Boko Haram), Every passing day has it’s own news or stories: (We don’t have arms to fight Boko Haram or we are retreating to re-organize) this are all lies, three years have gone by how many people should we wait to die before you can act, please cut the crab, AMERICA Can go to Iraq, Afghanistan, etc kill even the innocent once yet the world don’t see any thing wrong but when its countries like ours we are taking to world court, The Nigerian President and Nigerian’s should not be taking for a ride we have the right to do what is right to all Nigerian who wishes to be peaceful but any one who wishes otherwise should face real force. Lastly Correct me if i am wrong what is going on in Nigeria today is CORRUPTION IN IT’S HIGHEST LEVEL.
